Oops - is it *really* weigh-in day?

Well, the good news? I lost a pound.

The bad news? I have discovered a *serious* problem with mindless eating.

The plan I'm following is pretty simple - 3 meals a day with whatever I choose in moderation, no snacks, no sweets, no seconds except on the weekends. The currently infuriating thing is that I've had more "fail" days and "success" days because I realize after that fact that I ate something out of "habit".

For example, last night, due to a busy and crunched finals week schedule as well as seriously worn out parents, we ate out. Without thinking, I ordered a diet soda and proceeded with my meal. SODA? Not exactly part of the plan. LOL

And, I did it the other night when I went back for just one more little scoop of taters and didn't remember until it occurred to me an hour later!

So, I'm learning a lot about my bad habits and still lost a pound but have a long way to go!

To see how others in the Sisterhood are doing, go here today.

It's huge to start seeing those habits. Not until we can see them can we change them. Keep up the good work!

congratulations on the loss!

You're doing no S? From what I remember soda is not not part of the plan either. It's an interpretation thing. If it's a problem for you then you shouldn't drink it. The part that threw me was that "snack" is defined as a when and not a what. so if it is meal time and you choose to load your plate up with cheese doodles, it's a bad choice but still technically allowed. (Why do I know these things?)

Great job on the loss! This whole journey is about learning things about yourself. You'll figure it out and be successful. I promise.

Good luck!
